hi...I just what to debunk that pic with the car in the pool...if you put a car that size into a swimming pool, i reckon the water level would rise and the pool overflow...have a look at the water level...lmao.

cheers

I'd say that judging by the the tow trucks and or crane in the back ground,it had been in the pool for a while
Any excess water has dryed up ..... it looks like a hot day.

I agree with FloridaSlot about the car in the pool. The water should've risen up and overflowed. It almost looks like it's been photoshopped.

But the other pictures are quite funny. Love the tanks.

OK

Science lesson No 1

Experiment No 1

Water displacement

Fill a glass to the brim with water .......... place a golf ball (or any object that will fit) in the glass ......... water will overflow and then compensate for the added mass bringing the water level back to the top.

Anyway ...................... who said the pool was full to start with?

Yes - although if it WAS salt water and the pool had overflowed you'd be able to see the rust under the front left wheel-arch after enough time had elapsed for the original water to evaporate.. :blink:

You have waaaaaaaaay too much time on your hands gazza. Although I think that was mentioned earlier. How many more pics do you have?

And for the people who are concerned about the pool thing don't get too serious about it. This is supposed to be funny not a science lesson!

heyo,

Re: car in pool, i think it is real and the pool does look a bit more full then it usally would. It was mentioned that a golf ball places in a glass of water would cause the water to overflow, this is because the golf ball is solid, a car is not.

While cars look big and chunky, there is actaully a lot of air in them, the interior is filled with it, almost all of the structural members are hollow, so in essence a car is a large empty box. the only thing that does take up significant volume is the engine and transmission. so while a car occupies about say 1.8m x 1.5m x 4.5m = 12.15m3 but the metal itself is only in thin sheets (bar the engine and drive train components) Anyone ever seen a car crushed in one of them car crushing machines? A car ends up being a block only about 0.8m x 0.8m x 0.8m = 0.5m3. so theres only about 0.5m3 worth of metal in a car, now spread that volume over the area of a average pool thats say 6m x 3m = 18m2 will result in the water rising only 3cm.

I'm starting to feel like that ebay seller with the green lunch box. maybe i should be doing something more useful with my time... :huh:
